I have recently upgraded from 3.0.28a to 3.0.30 on a couple of FreeBSD 7.0
servers: one in a Windows 2000 Active Directory environment, and the other
in a Windows 2003 Active Directory environment, as member servers.
Everything works for a while and then winbindd goes into sulking mode.
Re-starting fixes everythng for a little while.

I'm guessing I've hit the winbindd bug described here:

What is the recommended resolution?
1. Apply the patch included in the post referenced above?
2. Apply a different patch?
3. Upgrade to version n?
4. Go back to 3.0.28a?
5. Something else?

If there is a prticular patch recommended I would like to include it in a PR
to the FreeBSD samba port maintainer. The current FreeBSD net/samba3 port is

Thank you for your help.
